Guy Diehl: Recent Paintings
Through June 30
Hackett-Freedman Gallery
San Francisco, California
(415) 362-7152
An illustrated catalogue is available.

The Hackett-Freedman Gallery will present this exhibition of recent work by Guy Diehl, an acrylic artist whose paintings reflect a deep interest in art history. Using the genre of the still life, Diehl incorporates personal and found objects into his setups to speak to the themes explored in past master’s paintings, whether that artist is Chardin, Franz Kline, or Diebenkorn. In his recent work, the artist has once again returned to isolating his subject in the center of the canvas surrounded by large areas of open space, which allows him to better highlight the beauty of the overlooked. The recurring motif of the bottle is part of an ongoing tribute to 20th-century painter Giorgio Morandi and illustrates Diehl’s deft ability with light and color.
